Default Paypal FYI

Just an FYI to all the buyers out there.
If you pay using your paypal mobile phone app. it is sent as a gift. = no recourse

That might explain why a few people have paid me via gift even though it was never mentioned.

I phone / android. I've Received numerous payments from them and they always lack info like address and never hit with fee's etc.. so I asked pay-pal why and they said they are sent as gift from a mobile. and obviously sent as a gift = no recourse. i don't use pay-pal mobile beside to check balance. when it comes to sending payments I'm on my laptop. plus its a hassle trying to get there address info. This is using the pay-pal APP not on mobilel via Internet. while some might know how to control it it seems there is alot of ppl that don't. so i just wanted to post this FYI

You get to choose payment type on the iPhone app.

I was wondering the same thing lately as it has happened to me as well when receiving funds.

Good to know. I always send money from my lap top because my Black Berry seems to be only good for email and texting.......
